I answered "tried but didn't like it" but I wouldn't say that that completely accurately describes my feelings about anal. I've tried anal sex with every single guy I've ever been with, but have only been able to do it successfully with one person.
I had always kind of wanted to be an anal whore. One of the first porns I watched was nothing but anal, and I thought women who could do it were kind of like Wonder Woman. I was determined that that would be me..
Alas, it's just not what I really enjoy. It takes me a lot of time to get into it, it takes him a lot of effort to keep my relaxed and then sometimes it feels really great after a certain point and I take it like a champ and other times, it's uncomfortable, it's awkward and it never starts feeling good. I have extremely mixed feelings about it.
I have a rule that I have to try everything three times before I gave it up. And even though my first 3 attempts at anal were absolute and complete failures, I still go back to it every once and awhile. I definitely would say that you definitely have to try it, because you really can't know how you'll feel about it until you do.
